Cadillac Jack

Ah, finally some sun today - perfect for snapping a few pics of the boys, even if the wind was naaaasty. Jack didn't seem fazed, I guess at his age he's seen pretty much everything!
He was just so happy to be free to nibble bits of grass, 
even if it was dry, and to not be bullied by other horses:


Nom nom nom
says the little camera ham!


He has such beautiful, kind eyes!


Old man Jack, lookin' good at 25!


With his buddy Black, who is 18 
but acts like 10!


Meeting Big Daddy, who is in a separate paddock -
we don't want any more biting by mister bully!


Checking out the goods...
awe sweet!


"Mom? He's huge!"


"Does my bum make me look fat?"


Jack has settled into his new home incredibly fast - we're all just amazed. He must be used to moving around, judging by the way he's just so zen about everything. Mind you, he's getting tons of cuddles, grooming and of course the much-coveted breakfasts and dinners of yummy specialty feed.

He'd been hungry for a while, judging by the lack of any fat on his ribs.

Cadillac Jack, mama's thrilled you are her very first horse!!

Jack looks great! I'm sure he's lovin' those senior grains... He'll put the weight on in no time.

I love his markings - just beautiful. And, you're right, he does have gentle eyes.

Congratulations on your new baby!
